To get this look, I started with a base of Essie The Perfect Cover Up. Then, I sponged on random sections of Essie Fall in Line and China Glaze Tongue & Chic (I know, I know, I have been reusing a lot of the same colors lately. But they are so perfect for autumn!) Then, I actually cut a bit off my loofah and taped it onto my nails, and sponged Essie Good as Gold over it. When I peeled off the loofah, I had this cool design! I topped everything with top coat.
I think a lot of the detail of the background colors got lost as soon as I added the bright gold polish. You can see hints of the shimmer in between the gold snake print, but it's not too noticeable!
Still, I am pretty satisfied with this design and I love the color scheme. I am actually really impressed that this technique worked! I wish I could credit whoever came up with this loofah technique, but I have seen it around on Pinterest so many times, and it never seems to link back to the nail artist. So if you know, send me an email!
Here are the colors I used. Oh man, look at how much of Essie Fall in Line I have already used! I am obsessed with that gorgeous green this season. Anyway, all of these polishes are available from HB Beauty Bar.
